SIRNAK, Turkey (AA) – At least two PKK terrorists were "neutralized" in Turkey's southeastern Sirnak province on Monday, an official statement said.
Turkish authorities often use the word "neutralized" in their statements to imply that the terrorists in question either surrendered or were killed or captured.
According to the statement by local governor's office, the terrorists were spotted in Bestler-Dereler region by an unmanned aerial vehicle in the morning.
Later, an air operation was conducted in the area in which two terrorists were “neutralized,” it added.
In its more than 30-year terror campaign against Turkey, the PKK — listed as a terrorist organization by Turkey, the U.S. and the EU — has been responsible for the death of some 40,000 people, including women and children.
